Light. An invisible power. A transformative force. While we can’t see light itself, as it interacts with the world it finds a form of physical expression, never more magnificently than when it touches a diamond. Celebrating the elemental magic of light, De Beers Jewellers has created its High Jewellery collection ‘The Alchemist of Light’.
Comprising seven sets totalling 45 one-of-a-kind pieces, the collection will be launched in two chapters. The first chapter including Atomique and Light Rays sets was revealed at Couture Week in Paris. The second will be unveiled at Paris Couture Week in July.
“Our new Alchemist of Light High Jewellery collection represents the pinnacle of diamond expertise and artistry,” said Celine Assimon, CEO of De Beers Jewellers & De Beers Forevermark. “These daring designs push creative and technical boundaries, inspired by the exceptional diamonds that De Beers is able to source, cut, and polish to the most exacting standards. A sublime fusion of art and science, precision and imagination, tradition and modernity.”
The Atomique set is a creative interpretation of a diamond at a molecular level, depicted by geometric patterns and abstract motifs. Paying tribute to the beauty and splendour of De Beers diamonds, the monochromatic scheme of pure white diamonds reflects the pristine clarity of a diamond’s prismatic makeup. The Atomique High Jewellery designs are bold and modern, becoming at one with the wearer, each piece as powerful as the alchemist who gives it light.
